Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

If an organization is looking for a good comprehensive identity management/governance suite that is easy to implement, CA identity manager may be a good/robust product. It is best to understand specific use case for your organization and try out the product before a final purchase decision as is the case with all sw products.

IdentityIQ

It is most appropriate for organizations that categorize the request in a "role" configuration but is quite appropriate for "entitlement" based configurations as well. Its flexible configuration is very effective for accommodating any business needs in an efficient manner.

Cons

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

  • Bringing on new users and removing existing user when new employee/contractors join or leave an organization can be improved by linking directly to HR module.
  • The slightly complicated GUI makes drill down difficult for a new user.

IdentityIQ

  • Beanshell is used to program it - this is an old variant of Java pre-generics. This language essentially died in 2005 and there is no reason a product like this should be using it.
  • There is no built-in way to version control the scripts that are used. We had to develop our own system to properly follow the SDLC.

Alternatives Considered

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

The final contenders were CA and Oracle - Oracle was tedious to implement and maintain while on the other hand CA was easy to implement and maintain and came at a much lower price.

IdentityIQ

IIQ can do much more. And it's highly configurable, so it can more easily be adapted for related uses.

IdentityIQ

  • Over time, IdentityIQ would save a lof of money and time by eliminating unnecessary paperwork in organizations.
